EM shows a lower standard deviation than the IM. The EM asym involves mixing cement paste outside the calorimeter for certain amount of time and then transferring the paste to the testing vial for data collection. The chemistry, Blaine fineness, and mineral compositions of these cements are summarized in Table 1.

Help Center C816 new research papers in: The degree of relative relationship is used to assess the relative reliability of HoH obtained from the calorimeter and ASTM C methods.

However, it is important to point out that the calibration process of the asstm could potentially affect the heat value. The total heat release profiles shown in Fig.

Alternate Tests Heat of hydration can be determined at any number of days. In the present study, an extensive test program is conducted to measure and compare the heat of hydration obtained from both calorimeter and ASTM C test methods. The heat of hydration at 3 days showed the least variation in all calorimeter tests.

Extensive experiments were conducted to compare the heat release changes between IM and EM methods.

TAM Air is an eight-channel isothermal heat conduction calorimeter. It is interesting to note that the heat release c18 among the different intense mixing times mainly occurred during the first atm min of cement hydration. With 45 s of intense mixing, the heat release at 30 min and 24 h is slightly lower than the heat release with the other two longer intense mixing procedures of 75 and s.

However, all heat release rates returned to approximately the same baseline after 30 min.

ASTM C – 17 Standard Test Method for Heat of Hydration of Hydraulic Cement

This indicates that hydration is stabilized from the rapid initial heat release in aatm early minutes. The heat release variation was also reflected in the cumulative heat release as shown in Fig.


This measure is a useful parameter for comparing ast, degree of variation from one data series to another, even if the means are drastically different from each other. Time for Results Please contact a CTLGroup chemical services representative or Project Manager to discuss your individual project needs and testing response times. A statistical analysis is performed to evaluate the variations of the test data.

The highest heat release is from 75 s of the intense mixing procedure. All received samples are assumed to be dry. Remember me on this computer. The energy change during hydration is collected and registered by an automated data acquisition program. The calorimeter instrument used in this work was calibrated in the absence of cement material.

Standard cement may be recommended for users to calibrate the calorimeter instruments. The research work in this paper is intended to develop some supplementary information, which may be useful for current ASTM standard development efforts.

The 3-day heat of hydration value can be used for specifying the limit of heat release for type II cements. Testing Techniques ASTM C method [3]—This test method determines the HoH of hydraulic cement by measuring the heat of solution of the dry cement and the heat of solution of a separate portion of the cement that has been mixed with water and hydrated to a specified age; the difference between the heats of solution of dry cement and hydrated cement is the value of HoH for this cement at the specified age.

ASTM C, Test equipment Controls

These suggest that ASTM shall consider adopting the isothermal conduction calorimeter method for measuring the heat of hydration of cement. The heat release from 30 min to 24 h for 75 and s of intense mixing time remains the same. Skip to main content. The difference in HoH values is not understood at this point. Instructions Sample mass should be grams 1 lb. A modified mini-electrical drill mixer was chosen for IM procedure. Figure 1 shows the actual hydration profiles of the cement pastes with different mixing procedures.

Regardless of the variation in the early minutes, the final total heat release at 24 h did not appear to be significantly different. For each mixing procedure, tests were conducted in pairs.


The longest intense mixing time of s also reduced the heat release.

ASTM C186 – 17

The heat release rates during the first 30 min are illustrated in Fig. The heat of solution of hydrated and unhydrated cement is determined through many steps involving tedious preparation of hydrated cement sample, the use of chemical agents, and analytical skills of wet chemistry.

The detailed descriptions of the procedures are listed in Table 3. Before calorimeter tests were conducted for data collection and data analysis purposes, a series of test procedures was examined with the objective of selecting a standard operating procedure for testing. This trend is graphically shown in Fig. This was likely due to the insufficient mixing time to disperse the cement particles. In general, the variation wstm EM is slightly lower than the variation observed with IM.

In this testing procedure, the HoH is not counted during the period of EM.

By and large, no significant variation can be seen regardless of the intense mixing duration. For blended cementsif the material to be blended with the cement is submitted on a wet basis, it needs to be labeled as such. If you need more info or have any questions, please note the Lab ID number and contact us at: The CV trend is also graphically shown in Fig. These tools and subsequent procedures were used throughout this program.

The objective of the strength test was to establish a strength database and compare the strength development with the heat release. Experimental Program Materials All cement samples used in this test program were from commercial sources.

Related Tests X-ray diffraction XRD and optical microscopy can be used to investigate cements that produce unusual heats of hydration.
